TEPSA is happy to present its new policy brief “The EU and the Sea. A Security Perspective” written by Jessica Larsen, Postdoctoral researcher specialising in peace, risk, and violence at the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS).
In an era of geopolitical tensions, the EU is emerging as a security actor. This is particularly evident in the maritime domain. Analysing EU counter-piracy operations, this TEPSA brief identifies the EU’s characteristics as a maritime security actor, not least vis à vis the existing security alliance of NATO, and highlights points for consideration as the EU continues to increase its defence and security policy cooperation.
